Hi Bold Bakers!

Do you know those times when you want a freshly-baked warm cookie but you don’t want to make a whole batch? Or you just have a small amount of flour and 1 egg left in your fridge? Well, I have come up with a solution: A recipe that will yield you just 1 perfect Big and Bold cookie, and possibly the nicest cookie you have ever had. You will have a freshly-baked cookie in less time than it will take to preheat the oven.

I have 3 amazing single-serving cookies – a classic Chocolate Chip Cookie, Soft Sugar Cookie, and  a Double Chocolate Chip Cookie

Cookie Recipe for 1 – Bigger Bolder Baking

These cookies are the perfect amount for a single serving. I am a big fan of single-serving recipes, just like my selection of mug cakes. So if you are in a rush, or want just one cookie after school or work, then this is a great recipe for you.

I was inspired to make these from some of my favorite blogs Sally’s Baking Addiction and Cooking Classy

A Classic Chocolate Chip Cookie

Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe for 1 – Bigger Bolder Baking

This cookie is so lovely because it has that gooey, almost underdone mildde with crispy edges, which equals cookie perfection!

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp (1oz/30g) butter
  • 3 Tbsp light-brown sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tbsp whisked egg*
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 5 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda (this is a ½ of a ¼ tsp)
  • 4 tbsp chocolate chips (I use dark chocolate)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350oF (180oC).
  • Place butter in a microwave safe mixing bowl and melt
  • To the melted butter, add brown sugar, salt, 1 tbsp egg, the vanilla, flour and baking soda. Stir with a spoon until well combined, about 20 - 30 seconds.
  • Mix in the chocolate chips.
  • Shape dough into a 3-inch disk on parchment paper lined baking sheet
  • Bake in preheated oven for 15-18 minutes, until cookie is golden. You don’t want to over bake your cookie so it stays soft and doughie in the middle.

Recipe Notes

*To get 1 Tbsp egg, crack egg into a small bowl, whisk until yolk and white are well blended, then measure out 1 Tbsp.

Sugar Cookie Recipe for 1 – Bigger Bolder Baking

This recipe is a soft sugar cookie, not a crispy cookie. Also I get to add sprinkles, which makes everything better. I love this cookie especially for around the holiday season.

hi gemma! i tried the chocolate one and it was super good! however, i tried multiplying the recipe to make a bigger batch so that its not just single serve but the cookies ended up with texture of cake (spongey and light). any thoughts? would you have this exact recipe that can create about 5-7 of these cookies?

Hi Gemma, lovely recipes and videos! I have noticed a few comments regarding the baking soda/cream of tartar vs baking powder. If I choose to use the baking powder would I need to use 1/2 teaspoon as the recipe calls for 1/4 teaspoon of cream of tartar and 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda.

Really yummy! We tried the chocolate chip cookie with mini chocolate chips and the double chocolate cookie. Both were excellent!!! Definitely a recipe to keep! Thanks Gemma!

A small question – I noticed that although the two chocolate cookies include baking soda, they do not require cream of tartar to aid in helping it rise, but the sugar cookie does. I suppose this is more of a scientific question – why is that? Thank you!

Deliciosity! Thats not a word but it could be. One big cookie is too much for me in one sitting, so I will divide into two and share!

Tastes amazing!!! I did the first one but instead of chocolate chips I put peanut MeMs and really mixed it into the dough. I gave a super cool tie-die efect. The taste tho!!! Super easy to make and literally the best cookie I have ever eaten!!!!!

Hi Gemma!
I have tried a LOT of your recipes, and they always turn out great! When I tried to make the sugar cookie, i pressed it down to 3 inches wide, and while baking it spread out to around 4-5 inches. In your video it the cookie looked quite thin whereas mine was quite thick and cakey. Any tips for getting it to spread out more? Also should I put it top or bottom rack (I put it on middle-bottom rack this time)?
Thank you!!
